Stem cell therapy is a form of advanced regenerative medicine that treats tissue damage, injuries, and pain. This therapy can be highly effective in treating sports injuries and helping athletes regain functionality.
Sports can place significant pressure on the joints, straining the body and placing the athlete at risk of injuries. When injuries occur, we understand the importance of getting back onto the field or court as quickly as possible. Stem Cell Carolina offers stem cell therapy to patients in Charlotte, helping them heal and bounce back after sports injuries.
Common Sports Injuries
Whether you are a professional athlete or just like to play for fun, sports take a toll on your body. Any sport, regardless of whether it is a solo, team, or contact sport, comes with risks. Sports injuries are often due to trauma or overuse of the muscles or joints and may include sprains, strains, contusions, and fractures. The most common sports injuries include ankle sprains, knee injuries, and tennis elbow.
Stem Cell Therapy Speeds Healing
Stem cell therapy offers athletes an alternative to traditional treatments. As a less invasive option, this regenerative treatment comes with many benefits in treating sports injuries.
What is Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem cell therapy is a non-surgical, non-opioid treatment with minimal to no side effects because it uses undifferentiated or “baby cells” from the patient’s own body. Stem cells are the cells from which all other cells are made. They are the raw ingredients of the body that form muscle, bone, blood, brain cells, and more. They have the unique ability to reproduce themselves and to become a different type of cell in order to achieve a particular function. These characteristics give stem cells their healing benefits.
How It Works
Stem cells are harvested from the patient’s bone marrow, often in the hip, or adipose tissue and reinjected at the injury site. The stem cells get to work reproducing healthy cells to heal and repair the damaged or injured tissues. Performed in our Charlotte office, stem cell injections help to reduce inflammation, release growth factor proteins, and repair and regenerate damaged tissues. They help the body heal naturally for long-lasting results.
How Stem Cell Therapy Helps Athletes
Stem cell therapy for sports injuries can help athletes recover from damage to the tendons, ligaments, muscles, cartilage, and joints. It is used to treat acute or chronic sports injuries including sprains, strains, tendonitis, and more. The treatment offers the following benefits:
- Faster healing and recovery
- Reduced inflammation from the current injury and prevention of inflammation from future injuries
- Regeneration of tissue
